ANNA'S ARCH makes a swift reappearance under a penalty after winning easily at Kelso on Saturday. Joe Colliver takes off 7lb and Alan Swinbank's improving five-year-old can complete a quick double. September's C&D winner Snooker didn't run badly off a much higher mark at Kelso next time but Agricultural and King's Chorister are difficult to predict and the latter has to get there on the bridle. Flora's Pride was last on her reappearance at Uttoxeter as was Emirate Isle at Hexham and both would need more here to figure.
